AKRON, Ohio – Human remains found by a fisherman along the bank of the Cuyahoga River last October have been identified as a man who was reported missing in Akron following a car crash in 2016.

The remains have been identified as 27-year-old La’ron Harris, of Newton Street, Akron, authorities said.

Harris had been missing since late February 2016 after he left a bar on Weathervane Lane, according to Akron police. Harris was driving a woman home in a Honda Accord when the car went over an embankment behind an apartment complex and into the river.
